Dave Grohl Biography (Wikipedia)

David Eric Grohl (born January 14, 1969) is an American musician, singer, and songwriter. He was the drummer for rock band Nirvana and founded the band Foo Fighters, for whom he is the singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter. Grohl is also the drummer and co-founder of the rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, and wrote the music and performed all the instruments for his short-lived side projects Late! and Probot. He has also recorded and toured with Queens of the Stone Age.

At age 17, Grohl joined Washington D.C.-area punk rock band Scream after the departure of drummer Kent Stax. He joined Nirvana soon after Scream's unexpected disbandment. Nirvana's second album, and the first to feature Grohl, Nevermind (1991), exceeded all expectations and became a worldwide commercial success. Following the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in 1994, Grohl formed Foo Fighters, a one-man project which later had a lineup filled out into a full band. In July 1995, the eponymous debut album was released by Roswell and Capitol Records. Foo Fighters have released nine further albums.
